Hot-loading[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

Hot-loading, in the context of CK3, is the act of overwriting scripts with their newly edited counterparts while the game is still running. This is specially useful for testing minor changes to events (such as strings, scope references and other), since it means that you can edit, save and test your script without the need to reload the whole game.

However, it is not perfect, it will not reload scripts that have not been modified, meaning that large changes that change how the script inteacts with other scripts may lead to an avalance of errors. The general rule is to only hot-load when making minor changes and debugging simple things. Anything beyond that runs the risk of causing errors when in reality all you needed was to just reload the game.
